Video Practice Points
  • Holding wrists and forearms tight does not maintain lag - keep wrists soft to allow the weight of the club head to pull back naturally
  • Drill: Weight your club and make tiny one-handed swings, feeling the flow & staying very loose
  • Add in some weight shift with each swing, keeping weight over the ankles
  • Remove the weight & swing again, keeping the wrist flat in the backswing
  • Make longer (9 to 3) swings, one hand at a time, focusing on keeping the wrist supple
  • With right hand, the club should be vertical when it is in front of the left leg
  • With left hand, the club should still be parallel to the ground when the hand is at the right thigh
  • Don't turn your body - the chest should still point at the ball
  • Use both hands for full 9 to 3 Drill, keeping left wrist flat & extending right arm as in Throw the Ball Drill
